How are you complicit in creating the conditions of your lives that you say you don’t want?

Journal Prompt #2

I love this prompt, which I discovered last weekend reading Jerry Colonna’s book “Reboot – Leadership and the Art of Growing Up“.

Jerry supports startup founders in their development as CEOs. He offers this powerful prompt to help leaders see how they have been creating the cultures and environments they complained about.

What is true for startups is also true for our lives. We often co-create the things we complain about. We create over-reliance by supporting others too much. We create unhealthy habits by using our circumstances as excuses. And, we create false beliefs by not challenging the assumptions that keep us safe but small.

Time – as Jerry writes – for some radical self-inquiry!
